Swimmer Abrahm DeVine is gay


Abrahm DeVine made his sexuality public in an interview with Swimming World Magazine, where he spoke about the challenges of continuing his career in swimming as a gay man, he was very afraid of how his coach and teammates would react, because there is only a handful of openly gay professional swimmers in the USA. He broke the ice by first telling a former teammate, who he said “did a lot” for him “and was really there for me as a friend.” The rest of the team reacted well, they were only sorry that Abrahm struggled so much because he was afraid of other people’s reaction. He referred to it as an “emotional time,” but said that his team’s positive reaction to the news was “pretty special” for him. “Just seeing them kind of prove me wrong was definitely special, something I’ll never forget,” he added.
